♥ I heart art ♥ Melanie Mikecz - toems

Meet Melanie. The freelance illustrator behind toems.
She specializes in a mixed media style that charms children and adults alike.

When did you first begin creating art?
My earlier artistic memory is sitting at the kitchen table and coloring on a giant piece of butcher block paper. I was probably 3 at the time.

What is your favorite/most sentimental creation? Why? 
These hot air balloons (below) are probably my most sentimental piece, not because they are the coolest thing ever. Rather they represent the time I finally found my groove. I floundered for years trying different techniques and styles before I found something that worked for me.

Is there a project you've always dreamed of creating? What would it be? 
My dream project would be to do one of my geometric designs at mural/wall size. So far I have been limited by my studio space, computer memory, and printer capacity. Someday...
